CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misidentified what the FEMA funds can be used for, according to a representative of the county’s Lava Recovery Task Force. The county plans to apply the funding to restore Pohoiki Road; however, the funds also can be used for alternative projects in Puna if it’s determined an impacted public road shouldn’t be recovered. Restoration of other roads is being assessed as part of the recovery planning process. Assessments of potential alternative projects would occur after decisions have been made about restoring public roads that were inundated by lava. The Tribune-Herald regrets the error.
